Made from soft and supple Nucliex yarn; 81% spun merino with a nylon filament at the core. It’s a high performing combination, with the comfort and odour managing properties of Merino, and quick drying and hard wearing enough for expedition use, retaining warmth even when damp. The finishing is lovely, with neat flat seams carefully positioned away from chafe points. The zip neck is long enough for comfortable venting, and there is a small bicep pocket for tucking away precious items.
VERDICT: A durable and technical Merino base layer that outperforms pure Merino in tough conditions.
BEST FOR: Expeditions, cold weather trekking, winter sports.
